Say you Love Me

By Woes of a Succubus

 If you say you love me,

The lie drips from your lips,

Like blood so scarlet,

When you say you love me,

Doubt confines me in it's grips,

But you seduce me like a harlot,

I don't need you,

Yes I want someone to care...

But to prove yourself true,

I need you to be there...

Would you stay with me,

When they all leave?

Would you kiss me,

Till I cannot breathe?

How far would you go?

All place limits on love...

I need to know,

Because you cannot rise above,

You're mortal you know,

All have failed,

Will you as well?

How can you say you love me...

When your kiss reeks of Hell?

Shamefully you use me,

You said you'd stay,

I want our love to be real, not just a game we play...

Go on and prove to me,

That I'm utterly wrong,

Whoever you may be,

I've been waiting for so long...
